All City Evolution: Fourth Wall

Visual Art Depicting the Genesis of art, individual and community in Boston by:

John Brewer
Thomas Burns
Robert Gibbs
Ricardo Gomez

All City Evolution is a collection of work by individual artists sharing roots in graffiti and grounded in Boston’s neighborhoods. Comprised of canvases and photographs, the exhibition is documentation of the legacy and development of graffiti in Boston and its future. With graffiti as a starting point, this group of artists expanded into community murals, graphic design, photography as well as outreach youth programs. The central theme of reflection of each artists’ legacy is conveyed as social commentary, documentation of Boston’s art movements and a celebration of hip hop culture.

Fourth Wall Presents : The Brothers Quay

Presented by The Coolidge Corner Theatre, The DORMITORIUM exhibition is organized and originated by the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.

The exhibit will be hosted from May 1st through May 21st, at The Fourth Wall Project, 132 Brookline Ave, Boston, MA 02215.

Gallery Hours are 1pm-7pm, Monday-Saturday.

The extraordinary Quay Brothers are two of the world’s most original filmmakers. Influenced by European writers, composers, and animators – particularly Bruno Schulz, Robert Walser, Kafka, Ladislaw Starewicz, Jan Švankmajer, Janáček, and Stravinsky – the Quays display a passion for detail, a breathtaking command of color and texture, and an uncanny use of focus and camera movement. Filmmaker Terry Gilliam deemed their classic film STREET OF CROCODILES, “one of the ten best animated films of all time”.

Their exquisite body of work includes many stop-action animation shorts, live action feature films, commercials, music videos, an award-winning collaboration with composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, dance films, set designs for theater and opera and an animated dream sequence for Julie Taymor’s film FRIDA. They are currently in production on THE MASK, a film based on the short story by Stanislaw Lem.

This exhibition is in conjunction with the Quay Brothers being awarded the Sixth Annual Coolidge Award.

Dormitorium coincides with the Quay Brothers receiving the Coolidge Award. The awards ceremony will be held at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | May 6 @ 8 pm; | Tickets for the Awards Ceremony are available directly from the Coolidge.

A special reception with the Quay Brothers in attendance for press and Coolidge Award Event Gold Ticket holders will be held on Tues, May 5 from 7:30 until 9:30 pm at Fourth Wall Project.
